Koh-Lanta is a French reality television series, France's version of Survivor. The series premiered on August 4, 2001. The show is broadcast on TF1 and there have been 12 regular seasons, and 3 special seasons. The host of "Koh-Lanta" is Denis Brogniart. Since its debut in 2001, "Koh-Lanta" has been a huge success in France, regularly finishing first in its timeslot.

Format and rules

16 contestants must survive on an uninhabited island for 40 days (20 days in special seasons). They have to find food to accompany the meagre ration of rice supplied to them at the beginning of the adventure. They should build a shelter to protect themselves from external conditions (weather, insects...) and keep alight the fire they were able to start or which they won in the first round.

Each contestant has a backpack with some clothes (limited to pants, shorts, two underwear, a hat, a pair of sunglasses etc.). Any product related to hygiene or food is prohibited (except due to illness).

Unlike most versions of Survivor, there can be more than one winner of "Koh-Lanta" depending on the season.

The name of the show, Koh-Lanta comes from first tribe names the Korok and the Lanta-naï.

The diving surrounding Ko Lanta are considered by many to be among some of the best the country has to offer. There is an enormous variety of fringing reefs, marine life, caves, rocks and islets.

Hin Daeng and Hin Muang near Ko Lanta are perhaps the best dive sites in Thailand (ranking in the world’s top ten) with more than 200 hard corals and 108 reef fish catalogued in a study underway, but thousands more organisms abound. Hin Daeng has the steepest and deepest in the whole of the country with beautiful marine life. Hin Muang next door is completely underwater and it is covered with delicate violet coral. The sites also have one of the world's highest incidences of manta ray sightings, with fairly frequent whale sharks.
The Ko Haa Archipelago which is just across from Ko Lanta in the Andaman Sea offers some of the best conditions for beginner to advanced divers, with stunning visibility and beautiful underwater landscapes, with its underwater caverns and abundance of soft coral.
